This book explains techniques that are essential in almost all branches of modern geometry such as algebraic geometry, complex geometry, or non-archimedian geometry. It uses the most accessible case, real and complex manifolds, as a model. The author especially emphasizes the difference between local and global questions. 

Cohomology theory of sheaves is introduced and its usage is illustrated by many examples.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is to introduce powerful techniques used in modern Algebraic and Differential Geometry, fundamentally focusing on the relation between local and global properties of geometric objects and on the obstructions to passing from the former to the latter. . The readership for this book will mostly consist of beginner to intermediate graduate students, and it may serve as the basis for a one-semester course on the cohomology of sheaves and its relation to real and complex manifolds." (Rui Miguel Saramago, zbMATH 1361.55001, 2017)
